Poured from tap into pint glass....nice golden color and even better lacing. Slightly cloudy but still looks great. Head clings to the side of the glass top to bottom. Pine, citrus/soapy flavor to be expected. Flavors mix well and are typical of the style but don't stand out or set themselves apart from the miriad of other decent IPA's on the market. Good...better than good, but not "great". Easy drinking without any unpleasant aftertaste. Alcohol is masked well, but would definitely sneak up on you if you didn't know better. I would have again.

A - Cloudy orange gold a finger of off white head, light spotty lacing.
S - Really weird aroma, very soapy, somewhat floral, sour orange and lemon.
T - Some sour orange and lemon, light pine, and on the end there's a lot of soapy kind of taste, some light spice too, rye and pepper, in the end.
M - Dry, thin, and very soapy.
O - No thanks. will not have again.

Poured into DFH IPA glass; translucent, light orange-yellow with a moderate white head that fades into a lovely ring of foam that leaves incredibly fine lacing rings.
Smell is dank herbal hops, some tropical fruit and citrus, hint of pine and bitterness.
Taste is bitter, piney and herbal. No fruity hops detected, despite the fruity nose. Hint of bitter citrus rind perhaps, but that's about it. Hops destroy any malt flavor as well. Finishes dry with lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel is minimal, smooth and dry.
Overall, not the kind of IPA I'm a fan of. It's all bitterness, not much actual flavor. Not bad if that's your kind of IPA though.
